Cheese is one of the most universally-liked foods in the world and goes well with nearly anything. If you ever wondered how long cheese has been existence, a recent report from the journal Nature will tell you. According to Nature, scientists have reportedly discovered pottery fragments that suggest that cheese has been in existence for more than 7,000 years.

The fragments have small holes and might have been used to separate curds from whey. According the report and Science Recorder, at the time this pottery may have been used, many people were lactose intolerant and could not eat large amounts of cheese. These days, it's almost like people find any excuse to incorporate cheese into their meal.

The main reason is because, well, cheese is delicious. The excess consumption of cheese has also been blamed for high obesity rates in America by some, but they are not directly linked by any means. Obviously, much like the old days of when that pottery was used, there are still millions who are lactose intolerant and cannot consume cheese--at least not as much as the average person. Some people just don't like cheese. Do you?

    Without cheese, there would be no pizza. Without pizza, there would be no reason to go on. Pizza is the cosmic glue that binds the universe together.

    Small amounts would be fine. Too much and I would feel nauseous.

    I love cheese! Especially really good cheese. There is a type called Dubliner Irish cheddar, this stuff is excellent. But it's kind of pricy, and it doesn't taste anything like regular cheddar cheese. And it's kind of white rather than yellow like regular cheddar. Oddly enough there is a discount grocery store called Aldi here in the US that is based in Germany. They they often sell the expensive imported cheeses at a huge discount. They were selling the Dubliner Irish cheese for 3 dollars for a package that would normally sell for 7 dollars. Plus a bunch of other imported European cheeses on the cheep. I stocked up on a bunch of different ones and stored it in the freezer. It thaws out and is still perfect. I love Aldi's, but a lot of people here think it is all low grade stuff. But in reality it is mostly really good stuff and often even better than the national brands, They have a lot of fine imported products. Including some really good German beer.

    But is a 7,000 year old cheese edible?
  • actionjksn David 2012/12/19 21:32:13 (edited)

    No but 40 year old cheese is edible as long as they made it from milk that came out of the cow on the same day. A guy in Wisconsin was selling 40 year old cheddar for 10 bucks an ounce. He also was selling 28 and 34 year old cheddar. You may still be able to get some online. He was selling the 28 year old stuff for 48 dollars per half pound. Which I don't think is a bad deal considering how rare it is. I guess it's very very sharp and strong. I would love to try it. It's also not uncommon to age cheese for two years.

    There's so much scientific evidence. It's not an opinion. It's fact.

    It's still an opinion and cannot be proven.

    Evidence means it HAS BEEN proven.....

    No. You are selective with your evidence. There is much more evidence than what is allowed in your narrow view.
